Breast Cancer Screening Based on Individual Risk Factors and Comparing the Effectiveness of 3D to 2D Mammography

Tomosynthesis Mammographic Imaging Screening Trial (TMIST) Scientific Title

Purpose
To study if risk-based screening for breast cancer is as safe and effective as age-based screening and if (3D) mammography is better than (2D) mammography at finding early-stage tumors.
Who is this for?
Women, age 45 to 74, who have never been diagnosed with DCIS or breast cancer. You must not have had a screening mammogram within the last 11 months    Full eligibility criteria

MRI-Based Imaging Technique to Distinguish Recurrent Brain Metastases from Radiation Damage

Treatment Response Assessment Maps (TRAMs) in the Delineation of Radiation Necrosis From Tumor Progression After Stereotactic Radiation in Patients With Brain Metastases: A Prospective Study Scientific Title

Purpose
To study whether Treatment Response Assessment Maps, a brain imaging technique, can help distinguish between a metastatic recurrence and tissue damage from prior radiation.
Who is this for?
People with metastatic (stage IV) breast cancer that has spread to the brain (brain metastases). Participants must have had a metastatic recurrence at least 4 months after radiation to the same site in the brain and planning to undergo surgery.    Full eligibility criteria
